It’s not a park, and, at least for buses, not very royal. Nor for their riders, waiting in the rain:
This is the stop for all West Van buses heading east, north and south. It’s really a slightly enlarged bus stop serving as a transit exchange, except without sidewalk capacity, real-time signage, adequate seating and overhead protection. Forget any prospect of a washroom.
There’s really no room for line-ups, which are simultaneous and frequent. For riders running for a bus or trying to negotiate past the crowds, the surface is just dangerous and probably not even legal:
I doubt whether critics of enhanced bus capacity understand that the less adequate the transit, the more you get what’s next to it:
If West Vancouver insists that the B-Line stop at Park Royal, are they prepared to design and fund a proper exchange, as well as capacity for the buses to turn back?
